STUDENT, TUTOR, VOLUNTEER, & PARTICIPANT ILLNESS POLICY
This policy intends to provide a healthy and safe environment for our students. Some illnesses and situations require a child to be absent from school to prevent the spread of infection to other children and to allow the child time to rest, recover, and be treated for the illness. To help keep our children healthy, Exodus requires adherence to the guidelines of this policy.
Children will not be allowed to attend classes or co-op-related activities if they have anything contagious such as, but not limited to the following:
FEVER: May return when fever free (under 99 degrees) for at least 48 hours, without medication.
DIARRHEA / VOMITING: May return when symptom-free for at least 48 hours
STREP THROAT: May return after 24 hours of antibiotic treatment and no fever for 48 hours
CONJUNCTIVITIS (pink eye): May return 24 hours after treatment begins and eyes are free of discharge
HEAD LICE: May return after treatment and removal of all live lice and nits from hair
RINGWORM: May return after treatment begins; the area should be covered while in school for the first 48 hours of treatment
IMPETIGO / STAPH / MRSA: May return 48 hours after treatment starts; wound must be covered with dressing taped on all 4 sides
COMMUNICABLE DISEASES OR INFECTIONS (such as, but not limited to - influenza, chickenpox, measles, mumps, pertussis, meningitis, mononucleosis, COVID, SARS, etc): May return when cleared by their medical provider, a minimum of 72 hours, unless the virus incubation period is longer such as with COVID, then we ask you remain out for the recommended time (14 days).
FAMILY ILLNESS: Another member of the household has any of the above symptoms/issues OR having come in recent contact with anyone who has had these issues. Please DO NOT send a child to any classes or activities when another family member is at home sick!!
FLU or COVID VACCINES: We also request that you not come to Exodus classes or activities for 7 days after receiving the flu vaccine/nasal mist, or the COVID vaccine. If you plan to receive these vaccines, we encourage you to schedule this before classes beginning or over summer/fall break so that your student does not miss any class days.
1. Medications – If your child requires any medications or medical equipment while in class, please both note on your enrollment form and notify the student’s teachers, so that a plan may be in place for the use of necessary medical support. (For Example: an inhaler during PE class)
2. Allergies – Please do not bring food to share with your child’s class or with your students without prior approval from the Campus Lead or responsible Program Director. All birthday celebrations, holiday treats, prizes, rewards, or edible experiments must be pre-approved due to food allergies. If your child has a food allergy, please both note on your enrollment form and notify the student’s teachers, so that precautions can be taken.
3. First Aid – Exodus has a first aid kit in the office. If a child has a minor injury, he/she should report it to their teacher, who will then find the parent to help care for the injury and notify the child’s parent.
Medical Emergency – In case of a medical emergency, please call 911 for EMS support. Notify the leadership member immediately.
If a student arrives at school with symptoms, or during the school day begins to show symptoms indicative of a condition listed above, a parent/guardian will be contacted and asked to pick the child up as soon as possible. Please note: Exodus is not medically liable for your child, it is for this purpose that we request one parent stay on site at all times with your child(ren).
PANDEMIC, EPIDEMIC OR GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN INFORMATION
Taking our current climate into consideration our focus must differ slightly to maintain our independence and freedom necessary to support each family in making their own educational decisions, while glorifying God in the process.
With this in mind, our plan is as follows:
· We WILL be having co-op as usual.
· We will make efforts to have proper hand washing materials available in the restrooms and will keep our current standard of a clean environment for our children and classrooms. Our facility will be cleaned and sanitized properly to the best of our ability at the end of each school day. We cannot be responsible for the cleaning after the church services as we are not in charge of those gatherings.
· Should a county shutdown be enforced Leadership will gather, and pray about which direction is best to follow at the time needed. We will also follow the facilities requirements at such time. If we choose not to shut down classes there will be no reimbursement will be available for the summer co-op. If we choose to shut down, you will receive a percentage reimbursement of the days not used. We will all work together in these changing times to continue to foster a love of education within your children and support for you, as a homeschool family. We feel that it is important to know that learning will go on, regardless of what our government chooses for our economy.
· Exodus and its representatives are not liable should any illnesses or issues occur. By signing these documents and registering for co-op you are knowingly choosing to abide by these by-laws and warnings.
· Exodus and its representatives shall not be held liable for any illness, disease, etc. that should occur nor its financial responsibilities of said illnesses or issues.
I have read, understood, and agree to ALL items aforementioned. I understand I am willingly taking the calculated risk & responsibility of enrolling my family and/or children in Exodus. It is my personal responsibility to be diligent to follow the above rules. I concede that it is not Exodus’s responsibility should anyone in my friends or family get sick.
